Lower back pain….I can’t tell you how many people I’ve met through my years practicing chiropractic that suffer from this. As with the neck and middle back, posture is a huge contributor. The good news is that there is a lot that you can do to impact your lower back posture and reduce your pain – not to mention get people around you to think you’ve grown taller!
For my final posture blog, I want to address the low back posture. Normal posture of the low back should include a nice C curve, with the arc of the C facing forward when looking from the side.
By far the most common postural problem in the low back is the anteriorly tilted pelvis. This can make someone appear as though they are scooping their butt up and back and sticking their stomach out in the front. This posture is sometimes referred to as “sway ” back.
